Ax-12 Servo Mounted to MicroRAX
I’ve been playing around with the Dynamixel AX-12 servo. It’s a nice little servo that has a variety of attachment brackets that allow you to build many cool things. The problem is I want to mount the servo onto a frame built from MicroRAX. The brackets that come with the servo are too small for this, when it comes to screw hole size.
Luckily we live in a day and age where a solution to this problem has an easy fix. Since the cad file for these brackets are freely available online, I was able to remodel the screw holes to the size I want, then I sent it off to Shapeways.com where it will be fabricated in a 3D printer and shipped to me.
I ordered it in three different materials to see which works the best. The results are very satisfying, the bracket fits on the servo perfectly and mounts nice and tight on the MicroRAX beam.
Problem solved! If anyone has a similar need, here are the resources.
